Third Quarter Sketchbook Series

For third quarter in art class, the weekly sketchbook assignment is a little different than normal. Taking some principles from the book Visual Literacy, the class must take an ordinary, everyday object and make it interesting. An example of this would be taking a dinner plate and drawing it as a flying saucer. The object they must draw is assigned, but it is up to each student to think of a way to creatively draw the ordinary object as something extraordinary. For the first assignment, the object was a doorknob; everyone’s drawings were quite ingenious.
